When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
We live in a universe where information is not centralized, but dispersed among its occupants. As expert as you might be in one area of life, you can be complete novice in other areas.
One daily mission I have adhered to for many years is the determination to learn something new everyday. You may not master a thing in a day or ever, but you can certainly learn about it. ALWAYS be a ready student.
Other people are vast stores of knowledge on practically any topic. The Internet has made it easy for them to share their expertise in a way never before possible. 15 years ago you might have had to read a book, take a class, or hope some home improvement television show might teach you how to remodel your bathroom. Today there are thousands of videos by experts or fellow do-it-yourselfers just a click away.
However, simply having access to information on topics isn’t enough. Your curiosity is still the driver that determines whether you’re a daily learner or just passing through.
Strive each day to learn something. Use the technology, but don’t miss out on pining an expert live and gleaning from their knowledge. When you have the knowledge and the opportunity, willingly share what you know with others.
Access to the vast store of human information is quickly becoming a commodity. Don’t forget each day to tap into that bounty to better yourself, better your life, or better the world.
What can the results be when someone new takes other peoples’ information and put the pieces together? You might create a 100 percent accurate cancer test that cost just three cents. In short, miracles can happen.
You all inspire me! Keep it up!
